Good Old Games



This Polish store is pretty popular as it has no DRM at all = you can install everything you buy there no matter how many times and no matter where. You need to setup an account and all of your purchases are displayed on a cool looking shelf with covers and setup files. Very nice alternative to Steam especially that it has older games mostly that wouldn’t run on modern hardware/OS without GOG’s help. USD Good Old Games (GOG)



Brazillian store with games, it is not in English but you can buy just fine from any place on planet. USD Nuuvem

One of the first alternatives to anything, it started out with very low prices, pretty good website and not bad customer support. Then they started asking for IDs (because of scams) and even sold some stolen games… Anyway pretty much everyone knows G2Play now – buy at your own risk but it seems to be ok for few years now.

    Do not use gamesplanet. Remove this site from the recommended lists, they charge you the money and do not send you the activation key. On the site it says the key will be send within 8 hours, but in the end I am not getting anything on my mail wrote to their support like 40 times no reply.

    Cdkeyexpress has terrible customer service with no answers or response and no cdkey for over 2 days now.

    I agree with those who say CJS-CDkeys is a scam, CJS-CDkeys has marked my order’s status as refunded, when I have not actually been sent a refund.

    D2D only has the UK store now, pounds sterling prices for EU residents as well! Customer service seems to have slowed down a lot though, could be that they’re in the US only? D2D still delivers instantly, as long as their phone check doesn’t fail – which in my case it did, and I’m an old customer!

    Gamesplanet “verification” takes a good while (direct quote: “The aforementioned check can take up to a few hours. We strive to deliver your key to you as fast as possible.”), so don’t buy from there if in a hurry to play.

    Do not use this website, I have been sold a “Settlers 7” CD key that was shortly after declared banned by Ubisoft, after contacting them they informed me this CD key has been illegally received and has been banned, and are threatening to sue me. I never received a scan nor any kind of “legal” information from and they deny to speak to me about it.

    I bought Dirt 3 only on $22 from & received the key within 3 hours. Also, awesome support team. So far, i’ve found that it is the cheapest store out there. Selling Battlefield 3 Limited Edition only at $32.

    I pre-ordered Fifa 2012 & Battlefield 3 both in $32. I recommend them.

    http::// have been very reliable for me. Purchased two keys from there. If I recall they do ring you up to confirm identity on first order. I received a phone call at 4:30am just after I had placed my order!

    I would recommend them :)

    i agree with Nicksta. CJS CDKEYS are bunch of scammers who are selling used key and then do email tag and play dumb. Waste of money and time. Use more reputable store.

    Hi Nicksta that is not true. we refunded you in full as you will see this issue now positively resolved.

  14. Nicksta Avatar

    You will receive terrible service if your product doesn’t work. This is precisely what happened to me. 3 months after requesting a refund and I still haven’t received one. Just keep this in mind when you do any shopping through CJS. They aren’t very reliable
